Rrose Sélavy

David Sokal
January 5 – 28, 2017
First Thursday: January 5, 5 – 8p
Artist’s Reception: January 7, 5 – 8p

An installation in homage to the father/mother of Conceptualism, Marcel Duchamp, employing multi-media, kinetic, and experiential strategies to strip the viewer of any remaining dubious notions of the artwork as aesthetic experience.

“Rrose Sélavy” was Duchamp’s female alter-ego and a pun on “Eros c’est la vie,” in English, Eros, that’s life. The work is loosely based on Duchamp’s masterpiece, “The Large Glass,” also known as “Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even.”
